COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with only six ingredients. Malted 2-row barley, palisade hops, orange blossom honey, White Labs California Ale Yeast, apricots and San Diego carbon filtered tap water. Low bitterness is balanced by tart apricots with a sweet but not cloying finish. Barmy Ale can be aged up to eight years with a strong honey wine character emerging if cellared. Be careful not to be the barmiest of them all.

Was listed as 12%. Pours to a glowing golden body with a crisp white head. Aroma is light apricots. Flavor is more significantly apricots and some light floral hops. Moderate sweetness. Medium body, and surprisingly not syrupy. Doesn’t taste like 12% at all. Very dangerous brew for that reason.

bottle - Hazy orange pour. Smells of apricots, malt, and honey. The flavor is sweet and fruity with ample honey character. Almost too sweet, but it's enjoyable.

This is by far the best beer I’ve ever had. Very hard to find this excellent beer though. Be warned though. One beer equals about three beers in alcohol strength. So great value! Fabulous taste. Apricot and honey flavors but not sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Universal Liquor at Universal City in LA on 14 October 2017. I don't think that I have ever had a fruit beer with such a high alcohol content but having said that you wouldn't know if was 12% when you are drinking it. Clean and crisp and went down well after a long afternoon and night of walking around Universal Studios.

Wenig Perlung, kaum Schaum, aber entdecke auch grad, dass das Teil satte 12 Pferde hat. Dann mal durchschnauben und ran an den Fisch. In der Nase hauptsächlich Honig, trauben, alkoholisch. Im Trunk Aprikosenlikör, süß, alkoholisch, Frucht. Sehr speziell, schwer zu trinken. Warum muss das so stark sein?

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 sweet nose and rich with ripe fruits and some hops on the top. Taste a little oily and very fruity. Apricots are definitely there. Palate is medium with fruit sweetness and also some welcome hops. Delicate.

Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Clear, blonde, not much head. Tangy aroma, a little floral. Just strong, sweet and boozy. Reminds me of a Soviet Bloc strong lager. Thick body. On tap, Momos.

tightslice (1450) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is apricots, honey, lozenges, vegetal hops. Taste is apricot juice with some mild honey and hay. Slightly more off-putting than expected.

allmyvinyl (11077) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle from the dregs run. Cheers Stuu! Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of apricot and almond. Taste has honey, dried apricot and more almond, almond essence in fact. Faint spice linger.
